Oily/Sensitive

WHAT IS IT?๐Ÿ‘€ Gentle cleansing balm that melts into an oil. Breaks down makeup, sunscreen & oils. Best suited as a makeup remover/ first cleanse. Suitable for all skin types๐Ÿฅณ PERSONAL EXPERIENCE๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ Okay, so I am very picky when it comes to oil cleansers esp balms๐Ÿ˜ฉ I donโ€™t appreciate oil cleansers that: 1. Leave a film/residue on the skin 2. Dries out/strips my skin 3. Clogs my pores & causes breakouts I can confidently say this balm cleanser does non of the above๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป. Itโ€™s incredibly gentle, it smells lovely & effectively breaks down spf & makeup. I must also admit itโ€™s my first ever Korean cleansing balm & I love it๐Ÿฅณ. It didnโ€™t really sting my eyes unless I have really stubborn waterproof mascara/eyeliner on. It doesnโ€™t leave a film on my skin after rinsing which is amazing๐Ÿฅฐ. It felt really good on my skin & left my skin feeling soft, smooth & clean! It melted down well & emulsified well. A little goes a long way & Iโ€™m very happy I tried this one! Love Beauty of Joseon products & the balm cleanser did not disappoint๐Ÿ’› REPURCHASE- Yes WORTH A TRY?- Absolutely! RECOMMEND- Yes! I think everyone may enjoy this one๐Ÿฅฐ FEEL & FINISH? - White solidified oil - Scoops out like sorbet - Melts down seamlessly into a silky oil - Housed in a white screw cap container - No residue/film - Soft, clean & radiant skin FRAGRANCE? - Yes- I think I might have the older version - Soft perfumy floral scent - Not overpowering at all HOW DOES IT WORK WITH OTHER PRODUCTS? - ๐Ÿฅฐ - No residue/film after rinsing PROs๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ - Effectively breaks down makeup & spf - Non drying/stripping - No residue/film - Gentle - Skin looks radiant - Pleasant scent - Longevity (little goes a long way) - Travel friendly - Feels so silky on my skin

I received this product for free from Picky and Papa Recipe in exchange for my honest review. โญ๏ธI have sensitive skin and the main appeal of skin care products is: mild, clean, refreshing, non-irritating, and fragrance-free. The first step in skin care is a facial cleanser. The choice of facial cleanser is very important. If the cleanser is too gentle, it does not wash away the dirt. Too much cleansing power can irritate the skin's water-oil imbalance. You have to find the cleanser that is just right for your skin. It must leaves the skin clean and non-irritated. ๐ŸŒŸI have been using [papa recipe Eggplant Clearing Mild Cleansing Foam] for two weeks recently and I am very satisfied! It fulfills all my requirements for a cleanser: non-irritating after cleanse while also refreshing and not tight after each wash. You can feel it after applying the mask, because the skin is not clogged with dirt and absorbs very quickly. ๐ŸŒŸIt is also very simple to use. It only takes a little bit of water. After adding water, you can knead thick bubbles. It has no smell, and it is very clean and nonirritating. I like it very much and is very satisfied! ๐Ÿ†Why does papa recipe eggplant facial cleanser perform so well?

๐ŸŒผ๐’ฆโ„ฏ๐“Ž ๐’พ๐“ƒโ„Š๐“‡โ„ฏ๐’น๐’พโ„ฏ๐“ƒ๐“‰๐“ˆ: This got a whopping 77.78% Gaomi (rice) extract. It also has niacinamide and rice bran extract. Rice extract is known for its rich antioxidant compounds, including Vit E, ferulic acid and oryzanol. The bran on the other hand contains moisturizing polysaccharides, omega fatty acids, and a lot of nutrients. All of these work synergistically to brighten your complexion, make it look more radiant, supple and younger looking. ๐ŸŒผโ„ฑโ„ด๐“‡๐“‚๐“Š๐“๐’ถ๐“‰๐’พโ„ด๐“ƒ: What caught my attention was its 2 distinct product densities. The first layer is watery, the other layer is more of like an emulsion. So you need to shake it first before using. ๐ŸŒผ๐’œ๐“…๐“…๐“๐’พ๐’ธ๐’ถ๐“‰๐’พโ„ด๐“ƒ: After cleansing, I take a few drops at the palm of my hand and massage them well across my face. This has a very watery milk consistency. Very lightweight and easily absorbed by my skin. ๐ŸŒผ๐’žโ„ด๐’พ๐“ƒ: Php1200 for 150ml, which is perhaps a little pricey compared to other k-beauty toners. But if you have a room in your budget, I would say it's a worthwhile product. ๐ŸŒผ๐’ฑโ„ฏ๐“‡๐’น๐’พ๐’ธ๐“‰: I think I've found the one. This is so perfect for my oily-combo skin! I have been using this consistently for ~3weeks, day & night. What I love about this is I can layer it bec it's very lightweight and fast absorbing (I love layering my toners & essences) it didn't make my skin feel greasy at all. And you can already see the instant glow right after application! I haven't seen any significant improvement on my pimple marks though (need to use it more to see), but the overall complexion of your skin will really improve. So if you're after the instant brightening effect and you have the budget, go for it!

The mixture of both peptides to smooth the skin and amino acids to hydrate the skin is a powerful duo that my young skin appreciated - it also worked really well alongside my ordinary amino acid serum (I have a review on that so do check it out)! My skin not only feels great but itโ€™s no longer so dull and dehydrated. Since Iโ€™m quite young, I didnโ€™t really observe the benefits of smoothing fine lines and wrinkles so I canโ€™t speak much on that behalf. However, I do recommend this serum towards those who want to firm up droopy skin, and insanely hydrate and smooth the skin! Itโ€™s especially beneficial towards dehydrated skin.

Retinol 1% in Squalane

Fragrance-free oil-type retinol product that I have repurchased countless times. It makes my skin look healthy and keeps acne and fine lines at bay.

I started with 1% cause I knew little or nothing about how to start using retinoids in February but I didnโ€™t slug on it. I introduced it gradually into my routine once weekly only at night. The purging stage was not visible at all cause they came in tiny pus filled pimples which are gone after cleansing , not the regular cyst acne. Despite the fact that itโ€™s an oil based serum, I wake up with less oil on my face and glowy. This serum has helped with my skin texture, skin tone and the puffiness around my right eye has greatly reduced. Retinol is good for dry to oily/acne prone skin but I would advice to start very very low cause I can say my skin coorperated & lucky this didnโ€™t really make my acne worse before getting better.

(Honestly I can recommend anyone to take photos if you want to monitor you skin changes). If you look at the before and after pictures in my slides you can see in the left corner already how some small wrinkles have already reduces. This is my first time using an eye cream and I do very much enjoy it. Firstly I love how nourishing and rich this cream is. With the small tip of the tube you can controll the amount of product you use very well. It's a thick cream that kinda melts into my skin while I massage it unto my eye are. My eye areas in general are pretty dry and this cream makes the area feel smooth and it does feel more elastic. I've been incorporating it in all of my skincare routines as it goes along well with almost all my other products ๐Ÿ˜Š I really like the ingredients Benton has used in this cream and I am gonna love keep using this. One extra tip: you can apply this anywhere on your face where wrinkle care is needed. It doesn't have to be your eye area only ๐Ÿ–ค ๐—ฅ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด 4.5/5 โญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธ I received this product from @bentoncosmetic in exchange for an honest review

Midnight Blue Calming Cream

Fragrance-free moisturizing and soothing moisturizer that leaves my skin smooth, nourished, and calmed

Dry/Resilient

This beautiful blue cream is everything I had hoped it would be! Let me just start off by saying I have a disease called lupus, which is an autoimmune disease that makes my body mistakenly attack my organs, tissues, blood cells and skin. That means that my face skin gets inflamed and irritated a lot, especially by the Sun and fluorescent lighting(even if it's only 5-10 minutes). I have become a huge fan and believer in the benefits of Azulene for skin, as it has been one of the few ingredients that really works to calm and soothe my skin. It is intended more for a spot treatment than a full on moisturizer, but I typically use it on around 1/2 of my face where it flares up at. It has a rich consistency with a smooth, silky texture and absorbs beautifully into the skin. Highly, highly recommend this. It's a life(skin) saver to have in your stash when you need it.
